Back in February, our darling Tweet returned to us. But she didn't just return, she came back in fine form with her third studio album Charlene. The set was full of soulful wonders, but none resonated as much as the tender and personal "I Was Created For This." The inspirational song is one of Charlene's highlights and its video matches its undeniable quiet strength.
The video's concept is simple enough. We see Tweet, her band and backup singers as they lay down the track. Tweet, dressed in a black-and-white striped top and floppy hat, looks like perfection as she delivers the song's lyrics. "So many times I tried to run away / I couldn’t find rest cause there was no hiding place," she sings. "And I heard a voice come up from deep within say / This is who I am, I no longer can pretend." As she delivers this word, her band provides a backdrop that makes it sound like it's coming straight from heaven. And that's pretty much it. No bells and whistles, just Tweet & Co. delivering a message that many need to hear in times of doubt.
If you've got a dream that you've been putting on the back burner or you've found yourself stumbling off the path to your goals, just press play and let Tweet assure you that you've got this.
